- Always use the freshest of vegetables.
This holds true for any dish with veggies, of course.

Tex Mex cuisine is traditional Mexican fare that’s been “reworked” by Mexican immigrants (called Tejanos years ago) who moved to Texas in the late 1800s and early 1900s.
They naturally brought the food they loved with them, and it has evolved over the years to the cuisine we now call Tex Mex. Many Tex Mex foods, in fact, never came from Mexico at all: fajitas, margaritas, nachos, and more are just a small sample of dishes that are completely Tex Mex. Read the rest of this entry »

Easter in Mexico is one of the most important religious holidays of the year; many consider it to be more important than Christmas because Easter is considered such within the Catholic faith. Mexico’s Instituto Nacional de Estadistica y Geographia (INEGI) reports that almost 90 percent of Mexican practice Catholicism. Hence, Easter’s importance within the country.
The week leading up to Easter Sunday is known in Mexico as Semana Santa (Holy Week), which starts on Palm Sunday (known as Domingo de Ramos) to Easter Sunday (Domingo de Pascua). However, many school children have two weeks off during this time, so both the week before and the week after often are said to make up the Semana Santa holiday celebrations.
This two-week break often makes up a Spring Break for residents of Mexico. Like many Americans celebrating their own Spring Break, many Mexicans head to the beach at this time, so be prepared if you find yourself heading to the country’s gorgeous beaches the weeks before and after Easter.
